- Who we are
- What we do
For the month of June, we will be encouraged by God’s word as we welcome guest preachers from our own congregation.
This Sunday we have Peter Blencowe preaching on the topic ‘Thanksgiving and Prayer ‘ from Colossians chapter 1, verses 1 to 14.
So, please come and join us at either 10am or 5pm. Or if you can’t make it in person, jump online to www.oakflats.tv and watch our live stream.
See you at 10am or 5pm this Sunday, God willing!
The talk for this Sunday is entitled “Will you compromise in the face of persecution?”.
I looked on the web sites of Barnabas Fund and Open Doors for examples to add some weight to my talk but was overwhelmed by the amount of relevant content. I have Egyptian Christian friends who still have family living in Egypt so I chose the following article to share from opendoors.org.au.
Christians experience limited rights and freedom in Egypt. Persecution, oppression and land theft are common for Egyptian Christians. Unfair laws imposed by the state ensure equality for Christians is limited. There have been more violent incidents towards Christians in Egypt recently, than in past years. Persecution continues from Islamic groups, government officials and even family members.
“I am thankful that he wouldn’t deny Christ even with his life in danger… He made the right choice.” – Hany, Christian mother in Egypt.
Hany is a mother from Egypt. In May 2017, Hany’s son was attacked by Islamic extremists in Minya, Egypt. He was martyred for refusing to deny Jesus.
Pray for Egypt:
“You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved” Matt: 10:22
